go, a beautiful couple of days we've had especially after -- i shouldn't say what we went through, may was a little bit gloomy and multiple rounds of rain so june 1 start of meteorological summer also the start of of hurricane season which we'll talk about in a moment. it's a long season. it goeses after thanksgiving. but tonight is so great and because the air is see dry that means the temperatures can really drop probably heading for the 50s in many areas so if you're going to have the windows open, don't have them open too wide. it might be a little bit chilly. it will be a chilly day, but another gorgeous day. i wanted to show you as we talk about the national hurricane center and actually noaa's hurricane pre dixies expected pre dichted to be an above average season all of which gets a name. the first one is i believe arden. five of
to four could be major hurricanes, which means over category three. that is not to say that any of these make landfall, but that's and active season for sure p if this verifies. let's talk a little bit about that season because as we get going in june we don't see very much out in the the tropics typically. prime time for hurricane season is august and september with the peco curing right around september 11. as we get busier this is when we'll be tracking sometimes multiple storm at once which is why they get names. so we will follow that closely for you. meanwhile we know tomorrow is going to be another beautiful day and temperatures will likely be similar to where we were today. i'm going to go 84 for reagan but near 80 for the suburbs. a beautiful friday with again the breeze back. speaking of the dry air, you can see the disirches the city holds onto the heat a little bit thanks to all the buildings and the concrete.

scoots down east of hagerstown, but it doesn't last long. a after the sun goes down those go away. but there is another batch of a little bit little weak i am prulses through pennsylvania that could spread a few overnight showers into the early part of saturday. there could be a couple more downpours, frederick, you may see some of a. but as we get closer to morning most of those are gone with the exception of a few little stragglers around the time of the sun coming up and then the rest of saturday is looking dry. heres here's your weekend forecast. we've taken the thunderstorm pockets out of saturday. we're going to go with the dry forecast with the exception of the overnight activity. eighty-four, that's new and i am profited. sunday if we see the thunderstorms it will be later in the day. a late shower or storm possible as we're a little bit warmer on sunday when the warm front goes on by and a temperature of 85-degrees. this is the weekend set up. saturday afternoon not
front on the move and a maybe a little l l ripple riding along it we can get some showers or stomples later in the day hopefully after dark. heading to the beach this weekend, ocean city looks like they'll be a little dryer than it was last weekend. it was a bit dreary for our memorial kickoff. saturday should be a mix of clouds and sun with a temperature of 74 and by the time we get into sunday, a late storm possibly there, temperature at 73 and that water still on the chilly side, but up a little bit from what it was last night. your fox5 accuweather seven day forecast so here we go, mostly 80s for the next four days. chances of thunderstorms really pick up on monday with more widespread activity into the afternoon. by the time we get to tuesday it looks like maybe a lingering shower, but here's something else that's improved with h forecast. wednesday and thursday we thought yesterday might be on the wet side now they're looking like they're trending dryer and a nice light l trend setting up as we begin meteorological summer and i'm happy
